Had my 38 week visit to my OB and specialist (who basically just does a bio-physical u/s) today...some GREAT things and some bad:
Firstly, my OB is !!!!THRILLED!!!! with how everything is going, my glucose numbers are "amazing, despite no diet change" , I am actually measuring a bit small both with the tape and on u/s (baby boy weighed 6 pounds 2 ounces today), and my blood pressure is still holding steady at my normal base-line that we established at the beginning of pregnancy ( 130's-140's/88-90)...
She said today that she knows we already mentioned the possible need to an induction at some point down the line but as of now she is more than happy and comfortable to let me go until 40.5 weeks before re-assessing the need for an induction.
If at that point my health (and his) is still on track we can look at waiting until 42 weeks, thats as far as Im personally comfortable going as well so Im estatic that she feels the same.
I also found out today that the nurse I normally have (and ABSOLUTELY ADORE!) went natural with all three of her births, we had such a good talk and Im so pumped now!!
Now, after seeing my OB I headed over to the Maternal Fetal Medicine specialist who I have complained about on here before...in recent weeks he has been a bit less of an ass but he is obviously one of those "fear monger" doctors.
We did my u/s and then he came in, confirmed that everything looks great and on track and then, for the THIRD FREAKING TIME in as many weeks asked me "Soooo, has Dr Stell decided when she is going to deliver you??"...
In the past I have said something a long the lines of "Oh, shes going with the flow....you know..." because Im really not good with standing up to doctors but I have been a bitch this week and snapped " Gee, I guess when the baby decided to come out!!"
He paused, made a note and then said "Well, at your next appointment Im going to go ahead and sweep your membranes"...Uhh...No your not ass-face...
I refused to schedule an appointment for next week...
Seriously, Im going on 39 weeks, you cannot accurately measure his weight past that point which is really the only reason I have put up going this often for this long anyway and everything "Looks great" according to you..not much is going to change in that regard between now and 40.5 weeks when Dr Stell will want another U/S to confirm position before letting me go to 42 weeks.
So you know what...F you...yeah...
Aside from all that Im feeling great!
Jasper has dropped extremely low in the past week (commented on by both docs today!!) and is still head down/face down.
My numbers are staying steady, if not dropping a bit and Im just so happy that everything is going so well!!!
Bah, thanks for listening!!
